Baby Take A Walk Outside, It’s The Fourth Of July

Because it’s the first nice day in what feels like months.

If somebody had to ask me what my favorite American band is, I’m pretty sure I’d have to go with X. Because even though John Doe ended up on Roswell and Exene left him to marry Viggo Mortensen, they put out six amazing, amazing albums. Not all of them are perfect; 1987’s See How We Are, which 4th of July is on, suffers from the fact that it sounds like it came out in 1987. But it’s kind of a brilliantly flawed album, made even more interesting because it lacks the all-around perfection of Los Angeles and Wild Gift and Under The Big Black Sun.

[nb: This video just got uploaded to Youtube yesterday. I’m assuming the record company folks will take it down any minute now, but I thought it would be better than listening to somebody’s cameraphone version of them doing it at South By Southwest this year.]
